Overview:

Travelzoo Inc. is a global Internet media company and trusted publisher of travel, entertainment and local deals. Our Travelzoo Deal Experts research, evaluate and test thousands of deals to find those with true value. More than 2,000 companies from around the world list their very best offers with us. We have deal experts (we call them producers) located in 25 offices across North America, Europe and Asia who work with these companies to sharpen their offers and provide you the smartest information.


A Brand You Can Trust:

  • 28 million members worldwide (14 million US members; 1.5 million CA members)
  • Publishing high quality deals since 1998
  • Publicly traded on the NASDAQ


Quality Promise:

Our mission is to recommend the best deals from the best companies. When we at Travelzoo publish and recommend deals to our 28 million members, we apply the most demanding quality standards:

  1. We never recommend a deal that we wouldn’t book ourselves.
  2. We have our Test Booking Center® research every deal before we publish it.
  3. We are independent in our reviews.
     

Content:

Travelzoo deals average a 40-50% saving and a 93% customer review score. Our high publishing standards mean we work with venues that have a hook (Zagat-rated, accolades, celebrity-endorsed, media coverage) and we ensure customers don't compromise on the experience.

Local deals are purchased as a voucher for customers to redeem directly with the venue. Redemption is simple and easy for customers -- they can present a printed voucher or present via our mobile app. Hotels can be booked directly on our hotel booking platform.
